Aha! Now I know where The Cimarons got their name!
The Cimarons were originally Jamaican natives and session musicians who worked with artists like Jimmy Cliff. They emigrated to the UK in 1967 and they were the backing band for many of the touring Jamaican artists during the late 60s and 70s. And, of course, they recorded with Bob Marley who knew a good thing when he heard it.
Just to bring this full circle, I believe they played on The Vulcans album, Star Trek!
